Okay, if this thread is supposed to go in the Forum Games section, then someone please move it if need be.

Anyway, these are the rules:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every category, type the song that's playing, along with the artist and the album name
5. When you go to a new category, press the next button
6. Don't lie.
7. Only do this two three times, one for the original movie and one for the "sequel" one for the "sequel", and one for the "third sequel that nobody really asked for but got anyway". But please, wait until at least 8 10 replies have already been submitted before you do another. The playlist replies, I mean.

Alright, these are mine:

  • @Linque said: Marduk, Wake Up by RATM played during the credits of the first Matrix movie. Don't know if the other two had a RATM song ending it as well.

    I think it was Reloaded.

  • Let's see if I can make sense out of all of them.

    Opening: Wonderboy - Tenacious D (Hell yeah!)
    Birth: Here It Goes Again - OK Go (The song is about a hangover after a one night stand, so... um...)
    First Day of School: What would Brian Boitano Do? - DVDA (Well, to survive school, I'll make a plan and I'll follow through, I guess)
    Falling in love: Times are Changing - Bob Dylan (Probably hinting towards puberty, I dunno)
    Fight scene: Boss of Me - They Might Be Giants (VERY appropriate)
    Breaking up: I Feel Fantastic - Jonathan Coulton (I guess she was holding me back?)

    Mental Breakdown: Flash Gordon Theme Song - Queen (hallucinations?)
    Driving: This Year - Mountain Goats (This seems appropriate, actually)
    Flashback: Different Town - SB & TMBG (Everything was different, apparently)
    Wedding: Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny - Lemon Demon (That's one heck of a wedding!)
    Birth of child: White and Nerdy - Weird Al (Like father like son?)
    Final Battle: Istanbul - TMBG (I dunno, I can't make any connection here)
    Death scene: Killer Queen - Queen (That damn prostitute killed me!)
    Funeral: Beautiful Day - U2 (Bono hates me?)
    End credits: Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley (Roll'd the credits? heh)

    Other than Wonderboy, this does not resemble my actual life (I hope not).

  • Entirely made up of Van Halen and AC/DC music.

  • Wow, this is one cool game, I must try it. Ok, here goes.
    Opening: Someone Put Your Hand Out by Michael Jackson
    Birth: Vanilla Twilight by Owl City (um, ok...)
    First Day of School: Love You Madly by CAKE (While it is kind of a love song, I can definitely imagine walking into school with this music blaring)
    Falling in love: The Largo LaGrande Theme - Monkey Island 2 Soundtrack (Well, I do like the upbeat Jazz feel to it, so I guess it fits :p )
    Fight scene: Got to Move by CAKE (If it was in slow-motion, sure :p )

    Birth of child: Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds by The Beatles (I think that works really well)
    Final Battle: Fall Again by Michael Jackson (YES! It has an epicness about it, like I'm slowly building myself up for a big battle)
    Death scene: Lady In Red - Altiyan Childs cover (It's sad sounding enough I guess, but I'm not a lady :p I could be singing to a loved one as I die or something though :p )
    Funeral: Wanna Be Starting Something (Ok, WTF is this, maybe my friends are out for blood for my murder? Idk, the title suggests that whoever killed me started a war)
    End credits: A Dimension of Pain - Monkey Island 2 Soundtrack (Now that's just silly)
